Early life

Carlos Julio Arosemena Tola was born in Guayaquil on April 12, 1888. He was founder of the Discount Bank in Guayaquil in 1920, being its Manager until February 20, 1952. Principal Director of the Board of Charities of Guayaquil, President of LEA, Executive Director of the Guayas Road Committee.


He assumed power during a political crisis, having been overthrown José María Velasco Ibarra by Carlos Mancheno, who did not exercise power for a long time due to pressure from the Military High Command, who favored the constitutional order, giving power to Mariano Suárez Veintimilla, be Vice President of Velasco Ibarra, who immediately convened an Extraordinary Congress to elect the new president and vice president, resulting constitutionally elected as vice president, but immediately assuming as Constitutional President, according to what the Constitution of the time ruled, by presenting his resignation Mariano Suárez immediately after his possession. José Rafael Bustamante was elected the same day as Vice President.

The president and vice president complemented each other: good judgment and balance were the strong of Arosemena Tola, convictions of freedom and natural talent were the strong of Bustamante. Both imposed the task of fostering openness to the international, adapting the economy to the post-war world situation and combating political cannibalism. The Government of Arosemena Tola was consistent with its bourgeois origin, with the cosmopolitan spirit of the upper class in Guayaquil and with the growing influence of the United States, the great Western winner in the Second War: Arosemena broke relations with the Soviet Union, signed the Charter of the Organization of American States and inaugurated the First Grand Colombian Economic Conference, whose final document, the Charter of Quito, was the antecedent of what would be called the Andean Pact.

Arosemena Tola promulgated on March 13, 1948 the Monetary Regime Law, a substitute for the Organic Law of the Central Bank. The new law put the Central Bank under the direction of the Monetary Board that should design the monetary, credit and exchange policy. He arranged for national production to support the currency and that gold reserves serve to determine the international parity of the sucre. This law, advised by the Triffin Mission of the International Monetary Fund, responded to the conditions of the post-war economy.

The task of combating cannibalism was put to the test in the presidential campaign that the Government prepared carefully. The Supreme Electoral Tribunal (TSE), autonomous with respect to the Ministry of Government, could already operate. The TSE worked well.
